  • Film Review: ‘Created Equal: Clarence Thomas In His Own Words’

    11/16/2019 9:16:13 AM PST · by rktman · 11 replies ^ | 11/16/2019 | Sarah Lee
    There’s a moment in the new Clarence Thomas documentary, “Created Equal: Clarence Thomas in His Own Words,” following the harrowing confirmation hearing that saw the gentle man, loving husband, and legal genius from Pin Point, Ga., accused of sexual harassment and smeared as a lecherous monster, that sticks with you long after the 2-hour film ends. It’s the look Thomas has on his face at his swearing-in ceremony. He’s not elated by the prospect of joining the Supreme Court. He looks tired and maybe more than a little concerned for his safety. And it’s an indictment of the people —...

    There’s a new documentary film out called “The Rise of Jordan Peterson.” But since the film was released late last month, the filmmakers have had a very hard time getting anyone to show it. Today the Stranger reports the cancelations are being driven by complaints about the content and, in some cases, by threats against would-be exhibitors: About halfway through my conversation with filmmakers Patricia Marcoccia and Maziar Ghaderi, they got two pieces of bad news. First, they found out from their tour manager that a planned screening of their film, The Rise of Jordan Peterson, had just been...
  • A Florida inmate's secretly recorded film shows the gruesome reality of life in prison

    With a camera hidden in a hollowed-out Bible, peeking through the “O” of the word “Holy,” and a pair of rigged reading glasses, Scott Whitney secretly filmed the world behind bars, inside one of Florida’s notoriously dangerous prisons. For four years, the 34-year-old convicted drug trafficker captured daily life on contraband cameras at the Martin Correctional Institution. He smuggled footage dating back to 2017 out of the prison, and titled the documentary “Behind Tha Barb Wire.” The video — given to the Miami Herald — allows the public to see with their own eyes the violence, rampant drug use and...

    Ukraine, the 'borderlands' between Russia and 'civilized' Europe is on fire. For centuries, it has been at the center of a tug-of-war between powers seeking to control its rich lands and Russia's access to the Mediterranean.The Maidan Massacre in early 2014 triggered a bloody uprising that ousted president Viktor Yanukovych, spurred Crimeans to secede and join Russia, and sparked a civil war in Eastern Ukraine.Russia was portrayed by Western media as the perpetrator, and has been sanctioned and widely condemned as such. But was Russia responsible for what happened?Ukraine on Fire provides a historical perspective for the deep divisions in...

    In a final scene of the Netflix documentary “American Factory,” the chairman of a Chinese auto glass company walks through the sprawling floor of one of the company’s factories in Dayton, Ohio, as an aide points to different departments where employees will soon be replaced by robotic arms and other machines. “We’re hoping to cancel four workers in July or August,” the aide tells him, almost proudly, before adding, “They are too slow.” Scenes like this are typical in the film, which depicts the fallout after Shanghai-based Fuyao Glass revives a former GM plant and hires many of its former...

    A certain former president and first lady have made their mark in Hollywood. “The Obamas settling into new role as Netflix producers,” said The Hollywood Reporter — referring of course to former President Barack Obama and Michelle Obama, who signed an exclusive production deal with Netflix some 15 months ago, then formed a Los Angeles-based production company called Higher Ground. More significantly, the couple is now readying their first release, a documentary titled “American Factory,” which chronicles the culture clash between Chinese and American workers in a U.S. auto glass factory. It is set to debut on Netflix before 139...

    PBS is attempting to enlighten Americans by airing the beginning of certain abortion procedures. But, if the network truly wants to inform viewers, it should also film the end.On April 22, Frontline, a PBS documentary series, explored “The Abortion Divide” in America and the changes that have occurred both “inside and outside abortion clinics over 30 years.” While the film captured women beginning their abortions, it stopped short of showing abortion for what it is: the ending of an unborn human person. Looking first at the “inside” of abortion clinics, the documentary focused on medical abortions.“One key difference explored in the film...

    “Beam me up Scotty.” These are an abortionist’s words directing a nurse to turn on the suction machine, words Abby Johnson heard when she was unexpectedly summoned to the procedure room of the Bryan, Texas Planned Parenthood clinic, of which she was the manager, to assist in an ultra-sound guided abortion. She was stunned to observe that the 13 week-old fetus pulled away from the invading suction cannula. Johnson recounts the abortion in her 2010 book Unplanned: “The cannula was already being rotated by the doctor, and now I could see the tiny body violently twisting with it. For the...

    In an era of obsession with Russia, 'Blood Money' asks 23 minutes of tough questions about Qatar. Op-ed. Why do countless headlines focus on Russian collusion and not on Qatari hacking, media manipulation, think-tank funding, and terror sponsorship? It's one of the central questions raised in 'Blood Money', the new documentary by journalist Mike Cernovich. In 23 fast-paced minutes, Cernovich dissects the web of Qatar's influence - buying campaign on U.S. soil with interspersed commentary from security experts J. Michael Waller, vice president of the Center for Security Policy; David Reaboi, senior vice president of the Securities Studies Group; and...

    Last Saturday night I had the privilege of attending Mike Cernovich's event, "NIGHT FOR FREEDOM." at the National Plaza in Maryland right outside of Washington, DC. It coincided with the last day of CPAC and I was so pleased to see so many young, enthusiastic Republicans at this event. We got to see his next documentary, "BLOOD MONEY." It was a disturbing look at how Qatar is buying influence in Washington, the media and Universities. I am attaching the trailer. When the full documentar is out (It's only like 20 minutes) I will post that as well. Joy Villa was...

    They like her. They really, really like her. A documentary of the story about Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez’s campaign to unseat a long-time incumbent won the annual audience award in the documentary category at the Sundance Film Festival. The political media’s darling has won over the Hollywood film industry, too. Rachel Lears wrote, produced and directed a documentary and financed it with a Kickstarter campaign. The documentary is titled “Knock Down the House” and the filmmaker really lucked out. She was in the right place at the right time. Choosing four women candidates running for elected office in 2018, Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez...

    Critics are raving about the new documentary, Apollo 11, which features an unearthed treasure trove of behind-the-scenes footage of the moon landing, following the movie's premiere at the 2019 Sundance Film Festival in Utah. The movie, deemed a 'masterful work of archival research' by Vulture, was created using a cache of 65mm, behind-the-scenes footage of the 1969 moon landing, and thousands of hours of vintage audio recordings of NASA employees talking about the mission. Unlike traditional documentaries, the 93-minute-long Apollo 11 is said to not include any voice-overs or cutaways to talking heads. Instead, director Todd Douglas Miller uses a...

    “Since the year 2000 is that history has been gradually re-politicized. And the Russians started treating history that way. They’ve become more sensitive again about discussing this sort of crimes of their past. For the Russians, understanding the history of the gulag is absolutely crucial. It is also crucial for the West" ...Under President Putin, the Stalin period has come to be viewed with ambiguity by politicians, writers, film makers, and regrettably the public. The stories of the victims of the gulag, told by simple people who had little or no understanding of why this was happening to them, make...
